Photo of the Week – November 23, 2018

The weather here has been really nice the last several days.  We’ve got snow and wind coming later this weekend, but today was a beautiful day.  After spending most of the day indoors, I needed a break, so I headed across town for a prairie hike.  The late afternoon light was very nice, so I checked out my square meter photo plot at Lincoln Creek Prairie, took a few photos within that plot, and then wandered more broadly around the prairie. 

Here are a few photos from today.

Switchgrass seeds (Panicum virgatum).
Roundheaded bushclover (Lespdeza capitata)
Indiangrass (Sorghastrum nutans) in my square meter plot.
Rosinweed seed heads.  (Silphium integrifolium)
More rosinweed seedheads.

    I’ve wished for years for a field guide that would show only seedheads and fruits. Given your camera skills and your obvious enjoyment of this stage of a plant’s life, maybe you should be the one to do it!

    Thank you for showing us the beauty of winter in prairie plants.

    I am fascinated by the variety of solutions that prairie plants have to protect and disperse their seeds.
